AI for Scientific Progress: Bringing Digital Control to Physical Matter

This 2-1/2 day, fast-paced interactive workshop in Silicon Valley is targeted at generating new insights, new projects, and new funding for the goal of applying advanced computer science to the challenges of atomic precision.

A multidisciplinary group of specialists in artificial intelligence—broadly defined—will collaborate with those tackling the challenges of constructing atomically-precise 3D structures, including pathways using chemistry, applied physics, biochemistry, molecular biology, and engineering.

Areas to be addressed include complex structures built via organic and inorganic synthesis; objects and devices constructed from DNA, RNA, proteins, or biomimetic polymers; construction via scanning probe; and other approaches to building with increasing precision from the bottom up.

The workshop white paper can be accessed here.
